Storyline

The capitalist one evening suddenly realizes that his wife is slowly drifting away from him. A certain young Rodney Hildebrand has been paying her great attention and her affairs are the common gossip at the club. He determines to at least save his wife's name from dishonor. One evening he returns home and finds the room filled with flowers which Hildebrand has sent her. He also finds a note from Hildebrand telling her he will call and take her to the opera that night. He is furious and waits for Hildebrand. The capitalist offers him $25,000 to leave the country for two years. Hildebrand accepts. The wife, who has overheard the conversation, now enters the room. The capitalist shows her how Hildebrand's love could be bought for a paltry sum of money, then tells her to go with him. She falls on her knees and begs her husband's forgiveness, which he gladly gives. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
